Whether you’re recently divorced or widowed and wondering how to get back out there or stuck in a rut and hoping to go on more second dates, Lisa Copeland supports mature women on the journey to a happy and fulfilling love life.
When her second marriage ended, Lisa Copeland felt like a failure. She had failed to pick the right men. She had failed to understand what qualities would make a marriage last. Alone at age 50, she felt trapped in a heartbreaking dating pattern.
One night, she woke up in a panic, facing a crisis of confidence. She called her sister and poured her heart out, explaining her fears about dating as a woman over 50. Her sister encouraged her, “Lisa, if there’s one thing I know about you, it’s that when you want something, there’s nothing that’s going to stop you from getting it.”
That was an aha-moment for Lisa. She decided to do whatever she could to turn her love life around and meet quality men who wouldn’t break her heart. She knew could figure this out.
Lisa started by looking for a dating coach to talk through some of her issues, but she couldn’t find one for single women over 50. So she had to be her own coach. She began reading everything she could about men and dating, and found by approaching dating with a can-do attitude, Lisa began enjoying flirting with guys and going out on more second dates. Soon, she began giving her friends tips on how to have fun while dating.
Eventually, she decided to start her own dating coaching business called Find a Quality Man to share her success with clients all over the world. As a dating coach, Lisa focuses on women over 50 who haven’t found their Mr. Right yet. Her private coaching, group workshops, and published works encourage women to let go of their fears and make good choices that lead to fulfilling relationships.
“I used to suffer while dating. I’d cry my eyes out,” she told us. “I didn’t want to see women suffer or have to do it alone anymore, so that’s why I became a dating coach.”
Currently, Lisa coaches mature single women by phone and on Skype. Through one-on-one coaching sessions, Lisa gives her clients a dating blueprint for finding the right person. She offers actionable advice on meeting men online and in person so women have more than one way to find quality dates.
Lisa takes on a limited number of clients a year so she can give individual attention to every single woman who comes to her for advice. “I really wrap my clients in a cocoon of support,” she told us. “They have access to me 24/7.”
By discussing personal issues with a supportive tone, Lisa dives in to help women navigate the dating world. She can advise her clients on everything from creating an irresistible dating profile to chatting up good men in real life. “Really, it all starts with having confidence in yourself,” she said. “And the second part is understanding men and letting a man be a man.”
According to Lisa, women in their 50s have to adjust their dating tactics and realize that they’re dating men, not boys. What worked as a 20-something dater isn’t going to be as successful as an adult dating a widower or a divorcé. In Lisa’s experience, mature daters care more about shared values, common interests, and personal qualities. So dating a man who is relationship material means building a friendship that will last far beyond those initial butterflies.
“Once you know what you’re looking for, you can figure out how to write a profile and how to flirt to get the results you desire,” she said. “I tell my clients not to worry about being rejected. It’s all part of the process.”
If you want to correct your mistakes on your own time and take control of your dating life, Lisa’s workshops (available as a CD series) can be a great starting point. In “Understanding Men 101” and “The 4 Secrets to Finding Mr. Right,” Lisa offers the tools to enjoy meaningful relationship success.
She confronts the mistakes she sees women making over and over again — including mistakes she herself has made — and shows women that change is possible. The classes guide singles on how to decode what men are thinking and become more attractive to the right type of man.
“For me, it’s a journey,” she said. “Everyone who’s divorced is afraid of failure, but they just have to work through their baggage to find love again.”

“Lisa’s guidance was like a GPS to help me navigate through the scary underworld of dating,” said Nancy K., who took Lisa’s workshop on finding the right man. “I highly recommend this program!”
In the days after she left her second husband, Lisa wondered if love was in her future. She dreaded starting again as a single woman in her 50s, but, in doing so, she rediscovered how fun and rewarding dating could be. After some hard work and soul-searching, she gained the confidence and knowledge she needed to make a relationship work.
Now, with a positive outlook on dating, Lisa inspires women over 50 to enjoy the same success by taking advantage of all the dating opportunities out there. Her coaching sessions and workshops explain what mature men want and how to pick compatible partners, so single women feel empowered to get in a long-term relationship no matter their age.
Thanks to her life experiences, Lisa brings a unique and empathetic perspective to dating coaching. “The secret to success in finding love is your mindset. Mindset is 80% of the game,” she told us. “The tools and skills are only 20%. It takes persistence to gather the information you need and then go out and use it.”
